Good 6.0
An average hostel, suitable for travellers (students) on a tight budget. Convenient location and helpful staff. Located in a quiet area with easy access to public transport.

Hostel Korea
The area that this Hostel is located in is very convenient. You are close to Dangdaemun Shopping mall, Dongmyo Station, Imperial Palace, local food shops, and much more. Beds are comfortable and overall clean. Bathrooms are a little sketchy, but this place is such a great deal! So cheap. Highly recommend for anyone staying a week or less or just looking to save a lot of money. Helpful and nice service as well!

Very Good 8.0
On the most part it was clean and the bedroom was good. We went to check in from 1 pm as hotels.com said but they said this was wrong and it's from 3pm so we had to wait over an hour in their cold outdoor common area. The shower and toilet is also one room which was very strange and not a good arrangement for use. The shared kitchen area was small and dirty.

Good!
Nothing to fault as a solo backpacker, being able to wash your laundry and to have a drying rack was amazing. The staff were really pleasant too:)

Exceptional 10.0
Great location
The hostel is very near between 2 subway stations (Dongmyo & Sinseoldong) so it gave me more flexibility in taking public transport. Just beware that there is another Hostel Korea nearby (it is tricky to find the place at first). Overall I had a pleasant stay.
